There isn't really anything special you can do. Every parent is different regardless of what color they are. They are two unique individuals like everyone else. Just be polite and friendly like you would with anyone. They want to meet YOU as a person. You can be on good behavior without being a phony.
Just remember that you like their son. These are the people who raised him and had a big influence on who he is. Just relax, you'll be OK.
One thing I will say about white vs Latinos. This is a broad generalization. Latinos tend to have closer families than whites. So you might not see as much closeness between family members. Again, that's a broad generalization and his family is unique like all other families.4

Be yourself! Just because his whole family is white doesn't mean they won't be accepting. If my brother brought home a Latina, I wouldn't think twice about it. It's normal to be nervous about meeting your boyfriend's parents, but you shouldn't be worried about not fitting in because of your ethnicity.2
